I’m So High off Etro

Over the past few months I’ve fell for Etro- hard. I mean I was amazed that I had not noticed the designer before. I love color, texture, and print and so does Kean Etro. The pure ironic contrast of prints and strategic use of color in his designs may seem like over kill to some, but it’s like a box of jewels to me. Some of his runway looks seem a bit aggressive, but the Etro ads (in GQ, Vogue, etc) are just downright inspirational. When I look at his line I just wanna touch it, don’t you?

and i dig the tatts.

collection this year.
hmmmm, i don’t know how i
feel about that… lol, yes i do.

On the Streets… PS: The Sartorialist

Every once in awhile I will glance through the street fashion found on the sartorialist website. I pulled a few for you guys, what do you think?

androgynous… i have so much to say
about this whole “feminine man” trend.
i’ve been working on a few articles for the
past few months about it, but i’m slightly
hesitant to be extra blunt about the
whole ordeal… long story short- i’ll
expound more on this feminine man trend
later, but just know that– i don’t like it, lol,
for the most part anyway.

3 different patterns- its the standard of fly
